Aloha Friends! It's early morning here in Hawaii and I am listening to the sounds of doves, chickens, roosters and a myriad of other bird sounds. It is something I am quite used to, but when I have guests they always mention how loud the birds are here! So funny when you just become accustomed to certain things, you don't even notice them!
I wanted to share a few things with you today. The first is a heads up about Google Reader. I am sure most of you know that it will no longer be around. I have made the switch to BlogLovin' and I have to say I really like it. I get a daily email with all the new posts of blogs I am following and I can sit and browse at my leisure. I have a link in my side bar with my other social media buttons.
Just click the picture above to take you over there to sign up and follow me if you want to stay in touch.
My friend Tori over at Tori's Teaching Tips has a great tutorial and Linky posted on her blog.
The next thing I wanted to share was that I was nominated by a sweet friend for Circle Of Moms Top 25 Blogger Teacher Moms! Whew that is a lot to say, lol! It is a fun way to honor moms that are teacher's who blog about their experiences. There are some great prizes for the top three winners, but I would be happy to just make the top 25.
If you are not familiar with Circle of Moms, it is a website devoted to all we mothers do. I joined the site when I had my first daughter. It is a great place to find info on all things relating to motherhood and a great way to connect with others.
I would absolutely love it and would be so honored if you voted for me. Just click the button above to take you to their site. There are lots of great mommy, teacher bloggers out there and I am thrilled to be included. You can vote each day until July 9th.
Today is my last day to spend with my sister, niece and nephew. They leave tonight. It has been so fun having them here and I will really miss them when they leave. My daughters have really become attached to their cousins and I know my youngest will be in tears for a few days. She has such a hard time saying goodbye.
